Women and people with a cervix, aged 25 to 69, who live in Alberta are eligible for regular cervical cancer screening using Pap tests every 3 years unless your healthcare provider tells you otherwise. Talk to your healthcare provider about what’s right for you.
If you're between the ages of 25 and 69, you're automatically included in the program. If you haven't already had a Pap test in Alberta, the Alberta Cervical Cancer Screening Program (ACCSP) will send you a letter inviting you to get screened.
Optional screening is available from age 21 to 24 based on informed patient choice.
